Summary:
Reeling from deceptions involving the people she loves, Poppy feels as if her world has tipped sideways. Maybe her colleague Annalise is right - Poppy needs to let loose and blow off some steam. What better way to vent than social media? With Annalise, she creates a private Facebook group that quickly takes off. Suddenly, Poppy feels like she's back in control. She has a place in the world again and she's learning that her life choices are worth celebrating - until someone begins leaking the group's private posts and stirring up a nasty backlash, shattering her confidence. Feeling judged by disapproving female colleagues and her own disappointed children, Frankie, too, is careening toward a breaking point. She also knows something about her boss - sensitive knowledge that she feels guilty holding back. As things begin to slide disastrously out of control, carefully concealed secrets and lies are exposed with devastating consequences - forcing these women to face painful truths about their lives and the things they do to survive.
